They weren't quite "notebook" computers yet, but laptops were replacing "luggables" in the portable computer category during the late 1980's. This program looks at the state of the art in portables including the Atari Portfolio, the GridPad, the Poqet PC, the Dynabook 286, the NEC Color Portable, Toshiba's T3200SX, IBM's P70 386, and the new Mac Portable. Average price for one of these laptops was about $5,000. Guests include Traveling Software CEO Mark Eppley. Originally broadcast in 1989. Copyright 1989 Stewart Cheifet Productions.
